Something Worth Doing Review

 

 

51273366

 

About The Book

 In 1853, Abigail Scott was a 19-year-old school teacher in Oregon Territory when she married Ben Duniway. Marriage meant giving up on teaching, but Abigail always believed she was meant to be more than a good wife and mother. When financial mistakes and an injury force Ben to stop working, Abigail becomes the primary breadwinner for her growing family. What she sees as a working woman appalls her, and she devotes her life to fighting for the rights of women, including their right to vote.

Following Abigail as she bears six children, runs a millinery and a private school, helps on the farm, writes novels, gives speeches, and eventually runs a newspaper supporting women's suffrage, Something Worth Doing explores issues that will resonate strongly with modern women: the pull between career and family, finding one's place in the public sphere, and dealing with frustrations and prejudices women encounter when they compete in male-dominated spaces. Based on a true story of a pioneer for women's rights from award-winning author Jane Kirkpatrick will inspire you to believe that some things are worth doing--even when the cost is great.

My Thoughts

I really enjoy Kirkpatrick’s books and I was thrilled to read a copy of this book. I have to say I think this is one of her best books in the way that she wrote the historical details into the story. She really brought the characters to life. Whether you like Abigail or not, this book is based on historical facts and is a great look into women’s life during this time. I researched more about Abigail after finishing the book and was really amazed at how well she did in portraying her life. There are a lot of things in this book that might raise some eyebrows in relation to Abigail’s perspective on life. She was a very opinionated woman. But even though I don't think I could relate to Abigail or necessarily want to I still really enjoyed reading her unique perspective.

There are so many things that we take for granted these days and the extra amount of work women did only a century ago is amazing. We really should be grateful for those who came before us.

The other thing I loved about this book is how it makes you realize people’s personalities really haven’t changed. There are many women who despise housework now just as they did before. I think we forget that even though people did what they did to survive back then it doesn’t mean they loved being homemakers. I think we have a certain image of how women were and this book brings to light a more realistic view on how a lot of women felt at the time.

 

I recommend to history lovers. Five Stars.

About the Book

 Zoe Johnson spent most of her life living in the shadows, never drawing attention to herself, never investing in people or places. But when a wide-eyed, bedraggled teenager with no memory walks into the diner where Zoe works, everything changes. Now, against her better judgment, Zoe, who has been trying to outrun her own painful memories of the past, finds herself attempting to help a girl who doesn't seem to have any past at all. The girl knows only one thing: she must reach a woman in Corpus Christi, Texas, hundreds of miles away, before the government agents who are searching for her catch up to them.

Award-winning author Rachelle Dekker throws you into the middle of the action and keeps the pressure on in this page-turning story that, asks Are we who the world says we are--or can we change our story and be something more? (Goodreads)

My Thoughts

 

This book starts off with a bang and pretty much leaves you holding your breath until the end. This is one of Rachelle's best novels so far. The story line had enough suspense to hold my interest and the way the characters are written was very well done. I wasn't a huge fan of Seeley but he still added a different perspective to the story line. The thing that really is kind of odd is that this book wasn't so far out there to be unrealistic. I could totally see the things that happen in the book happening in real life one day. I loved the tie in with The Girl Behind the Red Rope as I have read that book as well. I loved the book but the ending I still am not so sure about. It all seemed so rushed. All that to say if you enjoy suspense this is a good one to pick up! I also recommend reading Rachelle's other novels as she really is a talented author.

The Haunting At Bonaventure Circus Review

 

 

53837403. sy475

 About the Book

 

 1928
The Bonaventure Circus is a refuge for many, but Pippa Ripley was rejected from its inner circle as a baby. When she receives mysterious messages from someone called the "Watchman," she is determined to find him and the connection to her birth. As Pippa's search leads her to a man seeking justice for his murdered sister and evidence that a serial killer has been haunting the circus train, she must decide if uncovering her roots is worth putting herself directly in the path of the killer.

Present Day
The old circus train depot will either be torn down or preserved for historical importance, and its future rests on real estate project manager Chandler Faulk's shoulders. As she dives deep into the depot's history, she's also balancing a newly diagnosed autoimmune disease and the pressures of single motherhood. When she discovers clues to the unsolved murders of the past, Chandler is pulled into a story far darker and more haunting than even an abandoned train depot could portend. (Goodreads)

My Thoughts

 

Oh my goodness I could not put this book down. I knew it was going to be good but honestly this book was better than expected! The setting is fantastic and I learned a lot about the circus. The dual timeline was written flawlessly and I completely loved both stories. The characters were unique and I felt like I got to know each of them. I love how the author writes about real life tough stuff. The characters aren’t perfect in any way, they are all broken and searching. This is what makes the book all the better because she introduces the reader to hope. The suspense in both story lines was fantastic and the ending did take me by surprise. The romance side of things was interwoven perfectly.

Getting to read a Jaime Jo Wright novel is pure enjoyment. This story was also extra special as it includes a baby elephant!

Everything written by this author is my favorite.



Five Stars.

Two Rivers Review With Celebrate Lit Tours

 

 

About the Book

Book:  Two Rivers

Author: Michael W. Henry

Genre:  Fiction

Release Date: April 10, 2020

In 1840 Pastor Allen Hartman leaves behind his white-steepled church in New York, and the woman he hopes to marry, to serve as a missionary to Indians in the Oregon Territory. On his epic westward journey, he is plunged into the dark end of spiritual warfare and vital intercession. His mettle is further tested when he’s asked to stay in a village of Arapaho already contending with a malevolent witch doctor—where Allen has to draw upon courage he didn’t know he possessed and discovers ministering to Indians is not at all what he imagined.

Arapaho medicine man Two Rivers knows one thing—the Great Spirit is sending White Falcon to help his people defeat the malicious spiritual forces determined to overpower the tribe. But even as White Falcon teams up with Two Rivers, Allen finds himself enslaved in a cave and in a heaven-meets-earth clash of faith with an evil sorcerer. With his life at stake and his new friends unable to help, will Spirit-led prayers of believers lead to a complete victory, or will something be left undone?

About the  Author

Michael W. Henry’s ministry has spanned from serving as a missionary in Mexico, where he encountered intense spiritual warfare, to planting and pastoring churches in Washington state. A Christian counselor, Michael is certified through the American Association of Christian Counselors and offers spiritual-life coaching to believers searching for deep faith encounters with Jesus. Michael has long been fascinated by Native American spirituality and culture. He and his wife, also a certified counselor, live in Wenatchee, Washington, and enjoy hunting, hiking, canoeing, and other outdoor activities with their four adult children and two grandchildren.

 

 

 

More from Michael

Two Rivers is a story about courageous faith. I wrote it because as a missionary in Mexico, I had experienced spiritual encounters that I felt needed to be shared. A historical fiction seemed the perfect place to demonstrate the power of prayer and cross cultural respect in an authentic way.

My Thoughts

 

I was really intrigued by the idea of this story line. I am always eager to read more about Native Americans and so I was excited to see where this story might lead. To be honest the first part of the book was a bit of a let down. It went a different direction than I was expecting and I will say I wasn't sure I would be able to finish. Then about half way through I started to be more interested in the stories and the characters. I liked the setting and of course the cover is wonderful. I don't necessarily agree with everything in this book but it was an interesting read.

 About the Book

 

Sarah Denning is a military journalist with the Army in the Middle East when her convoy is attacked and she's taken hostage. When former Army Ranger Gavin Black is asked by his old unit commander--Sarah's imposing father--to plan an extremely risky rescue, he reluctantly agrees and successfully executes it.

Back in the US, Sarah is livid when she's discharged on a false psychiatric evaluation and vows to return to the Army. Until she learns of her brother's suicide. Unable to believe her brother would do such a thing, she puts her plans on hold and enlists Gavin to help her discover the truth. What they uncover may be the biggest story of Sarah's career--if she can survive long enough to write it.

Strap in for another breakneck nail-biter from bestselling romantic suspense author Lynette Eason that will have you up turning pages long into the night. (Goodreads)

My Thoughts

 

I enjoyed this book because it helped me think about what people in the military might experience when they are discharged. I know this book is fiction but it still gives me an idea into a life I would otherwise know nothing about. I liked Sarah's character a lot and the suspense element held my attention until the end. I thought the concept that interesting and unique and also a bit scary to think about how realistic it might be. I don't want any spoilers so you will just have to read it to find out! This is the second in the series and while the first book is my favorite I enjoyed this one as well.

Love's Mountain Quest Review with Celebrate Lit Tours


Love's Mountain Quest FB Banner

About the Book

Book:  Love’s Mountain Quest
Author: Misty M Beller
Genre:  Historical romance
Release Date: June 30, 2020
LovesMountainQuest 
After losing her husband in the Rocky Mountain wilderness, young widow Joanna Watson is struggling to make a new home for her five-year-old son, Samuel, in the little mountain town of Settler’s Fort. When she returns home from work to find Samuel and the woman watching him missing–and the sheriff dead–she enlists a man she prays has enough experience in this rugged country to help.
Isaac Bowen wants nothing more than a quiet, invisible life in these mountains, far away from the bad decisions of his past. But he has a strong suspicion of who’s behind the kidnapping and murder, and if he’s right, he knows all too well the evil they’re chasing.
As they press on against the elements, Joanna fights to hold on to hope, while Isaac knows a reckoning is coming. They find encouragement in the tentative trust that grows between them, but whether it can withstand the danger and coming confrontation is far from certain in this wild, unpredictable land.

The Story Behind the Story: Love’s Mountain Quest

Love’s Mountain Quest was one of the hardest books I’ve ever written, even though I LOVE Isaac and Joanna and their story. What made this book so hard was the fact that I wrote most of the story during my third trimester of pregnancy with our son!
 
Our little Matthew is our fourth baby (and first boy), so I was VERY heavy with child during the last three months I carried him, and that was the time that I’d scheduled to write Love’s Mountain Quest. Needless to say, the words were not flowing very well. My creativity was as exhausted as the rest of me! I could see Isaac and Joanna’s story in my mind, but showing it for readers using real words was the hard part.
Thankfully, I have an amazing editor at Bethany House (waving at Jen Veilleux!) who helped me massage the first draft, pushing both me and the story to be the very best we could be. Unfortunately for her, the edits for this book were the first bit of writing I did after taking a short maternity leave after the birth, so my brain was still a bit mushy from all the post-partum hormones and lack of sleep a newborn always brings. Jen’s patience through the process was remarkable, yet I so appreciate her determination not to stop until we had the very best book possible.
Our little Matthew just turned one, and Love’s Mountain Quest is finally making its way out into the world. Because of Jen, I’m so excited to share it with you! I can’t wait for you to meet the characters and story I love so much.

 My Thoughts


Misty M. Beller is a new to me author that I have really been enjoying! This is the second book in the series but I would say you could read it as a stand alone. The cover is stunning and there is non stop adventure from the first chapter. While I enjoyed book one a bit more I still was intrigued on what was going to happen to Samuel! The setting for her books are also some of my favorite so I enjoyed that in this story. 
If you enjoy historical fiction you might want to read one of Misty's stories. 

Four Stars.

Love And A Little White Lie Review

 

 

 

 

 About the Book

 January Sanders grew up believing karma was more reliable than an imaginary higher power, but after suffering her worst heartbreak in 29 years, she's open to just about anything, including taking a temporary position at her aunt's church. Keeping her lack of faith a secret, January is determined to use her photographic memory to help Grace Community's overworked staff, all while scraping herself off rock bottom.

What she doesn't count on is meeting the church's handsome and charming guitarist, who not only is a strong believer, but has also dedicated his life to Christian music. It's a match set for disaster, and yet January has no ability to stay away, even if it means pretending to have faith in a God she doesn't believe in.

Only this time, keeping secrets isn't as easy as she thought it would be. Especially when she's constantly running into her aunt's landscape architect, who seems to know everything about her past and present sins and makes no apologies about pushing her to deal with feelings she'd rather keep buried.

Torn between two worlds incapable of coexisting, can January find the healing that's eluded her or will her resistance to the truth ruin any chance of happiness? (Goodreads)

My Thoughts

 

I have read a few of Tammy L. Gray's books so I was excited that she got a publishing contract with Bethany House. I have to say this book wasn't quite what I was expecting. The cover is really fun and there were some good points made throughout the book. I really didn't care for any of the characters. I tried to like January but even in the end I just struggled with her. There is a twist in the plot that I didn't really see coming and to be honest was a tad confused when I realized what was going on. All that to say many people have loved this book but it simply wasn't for me. I do recommend Gray's other novels as she is a talented author. This story line I just didn't care for at this time. 

Three Stars.

The Edge of Belonging- A Must Read


51273818



About the Book

When Ivy Rose returns to her hometown to oversee an estate sale, she soon discovers that her grandmother left behind more than trinkets and photo frames--she provided a path to the truth behind Ivy's adoption. Shocked, Ivy seeks clues to her past, but a key piece to the mystery is missing.

Twenty-four years earlier, Harvey James finds an abandoned newborn who gives him a sense of human connection for the first time in his life. His desire to care for the baby runs up against the stark fact that he is homeless. When he becomes entwined with two people seeking to help him find his way, Harvey knows he must keep the baby a secret or risk losing the only person he's ever loved.

In this dual-time story from debut novelist Amanda Cox, the truth--both the search for it and the desire to keep it from others--takes center stage as Ivy and Harvey grapple with love, loss, and letting go. (Goodreads)




My Thoughts


Oh my goodness I could not put this book down! As a debut author I was pretty excited to read this book but was really blown away at how well done this story was written. It is a split time novel and the setting and the characters are so well done. I loved getting to know each unique person and there is the sweetest love story that is not over the top. There are so many topics that this story touches upon but I so loved Harvey and Pearl's characters and their relationship. There is a thread of mystery throughout the book that keeps you flipping pages for more. I thought this was also well written and really made me think about how realistic the situation could be these days. I won't give away any spoilers, you will just need to read it for yourself. This is hands down one of my favorite novels of the year.

Five Stars.

These Nameless Things Book Review


53170997


About the Book
Dan escaped captivity from the mountain long ago, but believes his brother is still there and waits each day in a nearby town for his escape. What Dan doesn't realize is that the rest of the townspeople are also waiting--but for reasons he never imagined. (Goodreads)



My Thoughts

This is the first book I have read by Shawn Smucker so I really wasn't sure what to expect. There were a lot of great lines and simple sayings that made this book unique. It takes a good long while to start to understand what in the world is going on within the pages. I struggled in keeping up with the different characters and who was who. The forgiveness part of this novel is what made this book worth reading to me. By the end I found the book to be interesting but not one I would necessarily recommend. A lot of people really enjoyed this book but it was just okay for me. 

Three Stars.

A Bride of Convenience Review





About the Book
Upon discovering an abandoned baby, Pastor Abe Merivale joins efforts with Zoe Hart, one of the newly arrived bride-ship women, to care for the infant. With mounting pressure to find the baby a home, Abe offers his hand as Zoe's groom. But after a hasty wedding, they soon realize their marriage of convenience is not so convenient after all. (Goodreads)



My Thoughts

Jody Hedlund creates some of the best historical romance stories. This is my favorite of this series and I couldn't put it down. The characters are fresh and fun and while Abe got on my nerves at times I actually liked that he wasn't a typical hero. The setting is fantastic and there are a few adventures that make this story anything but boring. Zoe's attitude is one to be admired especially in her situation and I enjoyed reading her loyalty. There is an adoption theme that I loved as well, it added a lot to the book.  
If you haven't read any of Jody's books you really must! If you like historical romance they are not to be missed.

Set The Stars Alight




About the Book

Lucy Clairmont's family treasured the magic of the past, and her childhood fascination with stories of the high seas led her to become a marine archaeologist. But when tragedy strikes, it's Dashel, an American forensic astronomer, and his knowledge of the stars that may help her unearth the truth behind the puzzle she's discovered in her family home.

Two hundred years earlier, the seeds of love are sown between a boy and a girl who spend their days playing in a secret sea cave, while the privileged young son of the estate looks on, wishing to join. As the children grow and war leads to unthinkable heartbreak, a story of love, betrayal, sacrifice, and redemption unfolds, held secret by the passage of time.

As Lucy and Dash journey to a mysterious old estate on the East Sussex coast, their search leads them to a community of souls and a long-hidden tale that may hold the answers--and the healing--they so desperately seek. (Goodreads)






My Thoughts

I really don't think I have adequate words to describe how much I loved this book. I have been following Amanda for years. I was so thrilled when Bethany House offered her a contract! Needless to say I am always excited to read her books but this one took me by surprise. Her writing is just superb and unique in a way where I feel like each page holds some type of magic. This story is dual time line which is my favorite. It was very well done and how she tied the stories together was wonderful. I LOVED all of the characters and I felt like I got to know them all really well by the end. Also, Dash might be one of my all time favorite hero names. While I loved the stories I also loved how she wrote about God being the pursuer of our hearts! 

"God is the pursuer of your heart, Lucy," Dad had said. "He is coming, and coming , and coming after you. In every sunset, in every snatch of birdsong. In everything that stirs deep into you and makes you hungry for bigger things, eternal things. That is Him, pursing you with tenderest grace. In the places so hard they wring your soul. In the places so beautiful they steal your breath. He is there, filling your soul, giving you breath." (page 324 Set The Stars Alight)

This book also couldn't have come out at a better time. It is consistently talking about being a light in the darkness and we have to hold fast to the Light in this world.

This is one of my all time favorite novels.You should find a copy and read it ASAP if you haven't done so. It will take you on a wonderful adventure.

FIVE STARS.

The Green Dress Review with Celebrate Lit Tours


About the Book

Book:  The Green Dress
Author: Liz Tolsma
Genre: Christian Historical Suspense
Release Date: June 2020

Death Seems to Follow Harriet’s New Friend
Book 6 in the True Colors series—Fiction Based on Strange-But True History
When Harriet Peters came to Boston in 1882, the Robinson family took her in like one of their own, and Harriet became closer to Lizzie Robinson than her own siblings. Now, four years later, Lizzie is deathly sick, failing quickly just like several others in her family have done over the past few years. How can so many in one family die from the same mysterious illness? Harriet doesn’t have answers, but she is determined to help the family, bringing in a new-to-the-neighborhood doctor, Michael Wheaton.
As Harriet and Michael close in on the answer, putting their own lives at risk, can the cause be found before anyone else dies?

About the Author


Liz Tolsma is a popular speaker and an editor and the owner of the Write Direction Editing. An almost-native Wisconsinite, she resides in a quiet corner of the state with her husband and is the mother of three. Her son proudly serves as a U.S. Marine. They adopted all of their children internationally, and one has special needs. When she gets a few spare minutes, she enjoys reading, relaxing on the front porch, walking, working in her large perennial garden, and camping with her family.




More from Liz

We’ve all been there—started a letter or an email or even a list, didn’t like what we had, crossed it out or hit the delete button, and tried again. Now imagine that happening when you’re writing a novel.

That’s what occurred with The Green Dress. Finding the perfect place to start a novel can be tricky, but when you’re trying to balance fact with fiction, it’s even harder. I needed the fictional heroine, Harriet Peters, to have a good reason to come into contact with and become close to the factual Robinson family. And I needed for the hero, Michael Wheaton, to meet Harriet early on. So I dove into the story. Five chapters later, the hero and heroine hadn’t yet met. The book wasn’t working.

I scrapped those chapters and started at a different point. At first, it seemed to be going better. I was happy. Until I got to the fifth chapter, when I realized again that the book wasn’t working. Frankly, it was boring. So those ended up in the virtual trash bin. Meanwhile, the clock was ticking on my deadline. I was desperate to find the right starting point, at a place with high tension. Finally, I had an “aha” moment, and the story flowed from there. That’s how the first five chapters (and the rest of The Green Dress) came to be.

My Thoughts

I find stories about real crimes to be completely fascinating. Real life can indeed be better than fiction. This story takes you into the life of Harriet Peters. The mystery seems to be obvious but you must read the entire book to fully understand the details. Liz Tolsma is a fantastic author who has written some historical fiction that has stuck with me for a long time. That combined with the suspense in these True Colors books really makes her writing stand out. If you enjoy history and the crimes interwoven I recommend you pick up one of the True Colors books. This one seems to be captivating to many!
